La genèse de la réforme monétaire augustéenne

Abstract : The Augustan monetary reform is the culmination of a process of technological innovations that began in the second century BC. The numerous analyses of Republican coins published for the first time show that pure copper was struck in that period. As for the orichalcum, it is used from the beginning of the first century BC, in the East first, followed by Caesar. The coherent system of the subdivisions of the denarius is borrowed from Antony. This article attempts, in a synthetic way, to show the Augustan borrowings that will culminate in the reform of 23 BC.
